  • Poured opaque but seemingly clear. Foam was dark tan, frothy, and a little more than a half inch. Retention was really good with the foam becoming creamy, leaving a patch of lacing as it receded.

    Aroma has malts up and down. Roasted, toasted, coffee, and touch of chocolate laced with caramel sweetness. Earthy scents take a back seat and come late.

    Taste is really nice. Roasted, coffee, and bitter, dark chocolate fill the palate. There is a clean hop spice and earthiness to the back end of the beer. A coffee bitterness in the late finish redeems the qualities of the early taste a second time.

    Carbonation is a bit prickly while the body is thinner than originally thought. I think it is all part of the ease of drinking for this beer.

    Really good taste for a beer that actually comes across a little thin. I really don't think that takes away from it. A session porter that is darn tasty and easy drinking. Enjoy!
